    Methinks she just had her 15 mintes of fame. By this time next week, more than likely, we'll hardly hear of her again.

    We'll see.

    She isn't going to win, but I think it might be closer than most of us think.

    she was also guaranteed to lose the primary.

    there was no way Scott Brown was going to win in Mass.

    Mark Rubio is a fool for thinking he could take on a sitting governor in a primary.

    Rand Paul is way too far right to ever be elected.....

    and so on and so forth.

    ANYONE claiming sureity in the failure of anti-incumbent / anti-establishment style candidates this year is either a fool, or whistling in the dark.

    Not full sureity, but 94% sureity.

    Primaries are also a lot more volatile and unpredictable than general elections.

    Honestly, I hope O'Donnell does stick around. In a "pinata" sorta way. She's even more airheaded than Palin, if that is at all possible. I totally understand why the more serious GOP figures are trying to distance her from the party.

    Myself, although I really haven't heard anything from her I agree with, per se, I think she is cute and kinda refreshing in an innocent, bubblehead, sorta way.

    I wonder how many votes this will cost her?

    Scott Brown won in Massachussets by being upfront with voters about the Increased federal spending. People see now the issue is, Scott Brown, more aptly citizen legislaters who want to get things done. Thats the problem he went to washington to make it work. People are clamouring to get a politician who will go to washington and get them back to work. The nations political machine and its elected lap dogs are simply doing what gets them the most political capital. Thats why- Obama Got in partly-We wanted real change. The teaparty is grass roots so far it hasnt became A submissive partner to the Dominate advances of the GOP. I think people are nervous - They are trying to force change by voting against the incumbent . The two party system IS failing to meet the demands of an ever changing world- we are soverign- yet the politics of expanding the," status of Imperal Rule( political class) in America" has it passing laws that are counter to the culture of the nation. They cant fix Immigration because they need the contribution it has to offer to its members, Money, Hot button issues at election time- voters that they can manipulate. I remember when the tea party was so fragmented and using conservative republicans- Now the candidates in the teaparty movement are starting to act like a third party," unbiased for Identity politics".

    Some lost but some gained is also possible. When Maddow played it on MSNBC and was laughing her ass off, it made Rachel look like a jerk, and O'Donnell a nice wholesome God loving Christian. People may be getting tired of Christianity being the butt of jokes. They may not kill you for it, but it may be enough to get them to the polls in Nov.
    I think O'Donnell should run it herself and say "look what they're showing all over the internet and cable news to attack me. I guess they couldn't find the porn film of me."

    That's right, a congress full of socialists and the best they could do is pass a rehashed version of a republican proposal.

    You're argument is more of a convoluted rant then anything else.
    ROTFLOL... that is a gut splitter my friend. You walked into that one face first.

    That they passed any Socialist healthcare program illustrates they are shades of socialists, and doing it without reading the bill smacks of the Duma, not the US Congress.

    She's in the national spotlight now. Has raised over a million in what, a little more than a day.
    No, I think her fame will last more than 15min, and that 11-point spread can change quick.

    Mike Castle's post election behavior, what at first seemed like it would hurt her, is now so overboard and petty that he's nullified himself. He's proven to be the wrong choice; petty, bitter, and exactly what folks said he was... a RINO.
